Regional Report 1033 – 5th October 2010


Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1033 for Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this nice sunny, but showery, Tuesday morning.

This Thursday Oct 7th. is the feast day of Our Blessed Lady of Holy Rosary  and Mass  by Fr. Paddy O Byrne, will be celebrated at Tubrid Well that evening starting at 7.

A very pleasant ceremony was held at the Wallis Arms Hotel last Wednesday night, organised by the Tidy Towns Committee. Prizes were presented to the winners of the Tidy Towns Competition, for best business frontage, best private frontage and best flower gardens. They were as follows, Eileen and Noel Collins, Mary Murray, Joan Wall, Margaret Smith, Paddy and Helen Sheahan , and Reens Farmacy.  The judges said that their task was a very difficult because of all the beautiful gardens to choose from. We’d like to congratulate the winners and compliment all those who make the effort to beautify their places.

We are sorry to say that LTV2 will not be back for a little longer. We will inform you a week in advance.

Millstreet’s Sports People

In sports perhaps Derrygallon’s Pat O Callaghan was Duhallow and Ireland’s best
The champion of champions when he was put to the test
The dual Olympic Gold Medallist and World Record Holder his legend lives on
Though for many Seasons the life from him has gone.
But so many great sports people in and near Millstreet Town
Who on their own right can lay claim to renown
In Gaelic Football alone so many one could name
Who in their chosen sport did scale the heights of fame. [read more …] “Millstreet’s Sports People”
